Strava and Fitbit API Mash-up Using Raspberry Pi and Python

Previously I blogged on how I used data from the Fitbit API to look at cadence information gathered during runs I'd logged on Strava.

Now that was all very good and informative but:
  • I analysed the Strava results manually.  i.e. Stepped through the website and noted down dates, times and durations of runs.
  • I used the Fitbit OAUTH1.0 URL builder website.  Very manual and using OAUTH1.0, (since deprecated, see here on using OAUTH2.0). it  was time to automate the process and upgrade to OAUTH2.0!  Hence it was time to break out the Raspberry Pi and get coding.

Full code at the bottom of this post (to not interrupt the flow) but the algorithm is as follows:
  • Loop, pulling back activity data from the Strava API (method here).
  • Select each Strava run (i.e. filter out rides and swims) and log key details (start date/time, duration, name, distance)
  • Double check if the date of the run was after I got my Fitbit (the FitbitEpoch constant).  If it is, form the Fitbit API URL using date and time parameters derived from the Strava API output.
  • Call the Fitbit API using the OAUTH2.0 method.
  • Log the results for later processing.
...easy (the trickiest bit was date/time manipulation)!

This provides output like this:

2016-04-16T09:02:03Z_4899.7,Parkrun 20160416,10,09:11:00,170

So a date and time,name of the run, minute of run and step count.

So easy to filter out interesting runs to compare:
pi@raspberrypi:~/Exercise/logs $ grep 20150516 steps_log_1.txt > parkrun_steps_1.txt
pi@raspberrypi:~/Exercise/logs $ grep 20160416 steps_log_1.txt >> parkrun_steps_1.txt

Then import to R for post analysis and plotting:
> parkrun1 <- read.csv(file=file.choose(),head=FALSE,sep=",")

> colnames(parkrun1) <- c("DateTimeDist","Name","Minute","TimeOfDay","Steps") 
> head(parkrun1)

Yielding this graph:

Interesting that I took longer to get going on the 2015 run, maybe there was congestion at the start.  The key thing I was looking for was the "steady state" cadence comparison between 2015 and 2016.  It's higher in 2016 which is exactly what I wanted to see as it's something I've worked on improving.

Using the same method I plotted the chart below which shows a long run prior to a half-marathon then the half-marathon itself:

Now this is interesting. The cadence was slightly higher for the whole of the training run (blue line) and much more consistent.  For the half-marathon itself (red line) my cadence really tailed off which is in tune with my last post where I analysed my drop off in speed over the final quarter of the run.

Here's all the code.  Modify for your API credentials, file system and Fitbit "Epoch" accordingly:
